Your Monday Update

1/5/09, MORNING

Hey everyone. I'm going to add little datelines above each entry as you see above. It helps our more casual readers see what's new and what isn't. The dates at the end of each post don't provide a date, which is odd.

To Auburn issues ...

The Tigers currently have four of their nine assistant slots filled:
  • Gus Malzahn, offensive coordinator (Tulsa)
  • James Willis, linebackers (Auburn)
  • Curtis Luper, running backs (Okla. State)
  • Jay Boulware, special teams (Iowa State)
Jobs still open:
  • Defensive coordinator (and secondary coach)
  • Defensive line coach
  • Offensive line coach
  • Receivers coach
  • Wild card (might DEs and DTs be separated?, might TEs get their own coach?)


SO WHO IS NEXT?: One of Auburn's jets is sitting in Stillwater, Okla., at this hour. Gene Chizik interviewed OSU assistant Trooper Taylor yesterday. Taylor met with Malzahn as well. It's unclear what's happening right now. The fact that Auburn's plane is there mean (to me) that Auburn believes Taylor could sign at any minute.

Jay any chance that Sen'Derrik could change his mind?? I posted that Phil Savage openly said that it would not be to his benefit to come out this year. He could better himself if waited. I believe Phil Savage would know better than Sen's gut feeling.

My personal observations on the car flags:

Usually the parking lot at work is good for a dozen or so. Today there are none.

How many in year have turned down promotions in our careers in order to remain loyal to the first company that took a chance with us right out of college?

To the college coaches, I imagine their jobs feel very much like "real world jobs."

It's not like they are taking an oath to defend the constitution or anything. It is football. I consider it no higher than what I do, and I would like the freedom to search for better jobs if I feel like it.

All that being said, it is also well within BC's right to fire the guy for interviewing. If he has a problem with it, then quit and go elsewhere. Kind of like how Auburn was well within their rights to hire someone with less success for less money. We are all free here baby, it's America!

Mr S....A good contract should have "balance" in the relationship.

A contract that says...you coach good and we'll pay you what was agreed for the time agreed...Oh,and.... we can fire you at our whim and you can't interview for other jobs,...would only attract loser coaches that didn't have any other options.

That type of contract could probably be voided in court for for onerous imbalance.

Mr. Sensible: "I like the institution that won't be twisted in the wind by their coach.

And I join you. The coach has a contract. He should honor it. Student-athletes are not free to transfer to other schools or even to go pro willy-nilly, even if they think it will "better" themselves.

The whole coaching thing with switching jobs and driving up the market (which seems at least partially driven by agent relationships that border on incestuous with big name coaches sharing a single agent) is out of hand.

I hope other schools follow the lead that BC seems to have set here. While you are our coach, you are our coach. And the second you think you want out for greener pastures, get thee gone.

Glad to hear Trooper is on board. That's a huge hire. Now let's get a top level DC on board and see if Rodney Garner still wants to listen to us.

As far as the Boston College thing vs the real world...most of us in the real world don't sign contracts that bind us to a job for a number of years. In theory when you sign that contract you are telling giving your employer your word that for that time period you would perform a certain duty for an amount agreed upon. Now I'm all for people getting the most money they can, but in the real world if you are two years into a 5 year deal and have had your best job at the company you work for, it's highly unlikely that you can just step in and renegotiate more money like almost every coach does after 9 or 10 win season these days, much less break a binding contract like both the coaches and schools do on a regular basis. So it's just hard to compare the two.

It's not as much of a contract, but a pre-nup to prearrange the divorce.

Boston College is barking up the wrong tree in this one...its one of those unwritten rules that AD's usually abide by.... BC has said that they will fire him if he interviews...obviously it doesn't say anywhere in his Contract that he cant leave BC for a bigger and better job...

And Roman...All scholarships are one year deal so if they want to leave for another school who wants them they are free to do so

Now if a coach goes out and actively searches for a job (CTT 07') that is another thing entirely

Sensi...I hate the $$$ and disloyalty in CFB also, but if we really want loyalty, then the fans are to blame also. In order to have reciprocal loyalty, a school that hires a coach to a 5 year contract should honor the contract for the full duration and not force/pay the coach to leave early. Of course today's fans wouldn't stand for that. If the school can be disloyal and fire the coach for perceived poor performance, then the coach should be able to be disloyal and leave for bigger $$$ if his stock goes up.

I can't stand this aspect of college ball, but I also can't come up with any other scenerios that are fair to both sides.

Zteve.....Before you shave your head.....consider the shape. Mine is lumpy and would not be attractive like the AU Shaft Trio. Different sunglasses and mucho tanning booth time would also be required for ya.

Contracts should be honored. It is really the only way to have some kind of stability in a program. The bonehead things that have gone on at Auburn this decade have seriously damaged our reputation. It is why we couldn't attract a top name coach.

Zhoopie,

That's what scares me with the amount of hair I seem to be losing since I hit 30. I'm afraid if it all falls out that my head is an awkward shape.

It just occurred to me that we don't know the length of Chizik's contract. I would hope it would be for 4 or 5 years.

So far CG is doing an outstanding job (IMO) of assembling his staff. This is very exciting stuff!

If what we have seen so far is any indication, the DC hire is going to be something huge.

OK, Mike Gundy is a man.

He's 41, which makes him middle-aged. Stress monster.

He's lost two offensive assistant coaches. He's lost his DC to another school, and he's fired a staff member.

What could make his day worse?

What is Auburn hired his offensive line coach Joe Wickline, who has spent half of his quarter century career in the SEC and was at Florida about the same time as ... Chizzle.

That would be too funny. Is it a possibility? I don't know. But it's a consideration.

Now, let's find us a DC.

So what exactly is the argument going on here with the BC situation? Do the people opposed think BC is wrong, stupid, or illegal for what they are doing? Because I think I would say they might be stupid, but I wouldn't say it is wrong or anything like that. Not letting him interview is an interesting move that seems to be within their rights, and it is probably a pretty good move from where they are standing. They will never hire someone away from a big program, so it's not like they would ever make a splashy hire anyway. They will always have to hire someone under the radar. A coach at a D-1AA school would still take the job because it is a step up, even if the school doesn't let them interview at other jobs.

I don't know enough about the situation, so it may totally backfire. I don't think this strategy would work at top tier programs. But I also don't think BC is wrong. It is a business, they made a business decision, big deal.

I have to agree with Michael in this whole BC/ Jagodz deal. I think both sides have made a commitment to one another. If Jagogz decides he wants to see if he can upgrade his job or as some would say "better himself", then he better be prepared for the consequences. What would Jagod say if BC decided they were just going to interview a few head coaching candidates to see if they could "better themselves"?

For all of you who are married in here, call your spouse this afternoon and tell them you are going to interview with a few other possible mates, just to see if you can upgrade or better yourself. My wife would kick me in the.....
